    • Colchester United v Crewe Alexandra [Saturday 26th November 2016 15:00]
    • Venue - Weston Homes Community Stadium, Colchester, Essex, CO4 5UP.
    • Forecast - 8°C; Overcast [LINK]

    The U’s ended our epic 13 game winless drought in style with a 3-0 demolition of Cheltenham during the week, but we could’ve done without the visit of bogey team Crewe on Saturday as we look to build on it...

    The Alex have a formidable 100% record at the WHCS, winning their last 7 successive visits to Colchester, representing 24 years of domination. It wasn’t always this way, in our first Football League stint the Cheshire side were virtually a guaranteed 3 points, but since our return to the FL in 1992, we’ve lost a miserable 12 of our last 16 meetings...

    1962-1990 P 34 W 23 D 06 L 05 F 74 A 41 +33 (W% - 68%)
    1992-2016 P 16 W 02 D 02 L 12 F 20 A 36 -16 (W% - 13%)

    Despite their current lofty position of 7th, in the final play-off berth, the Railwaymen have only won 6 games this season – that’s just 1 more than the us - including just 2 in their last 10.

    The disturbing and harrowing off-the-field revelations this week have cast a dark shadow over Crewe’s famous academy. It brings into sharp focus the safeguarding responsibilities all clubs have to the youngsters coming through their ranks to make sure nothing like this can ever happen again.

    Full Time Result Probability: Colchester win 42%; Draw 27%; Crewe win 31%.
